World-renowned musicians from Tibet now residing in Australia – Tenzin Choegyal and Lhamo Dolma – will perform at Byron Bay Community Centre next Tuesday.

Titled The Tibet Effect, the performance is a combined community-Tibetan initiative to help raise funds for the building of the Kalachakra Stupa at the Crystal Castle, Montecollum.

Tenzin Choegyal is a traditional Tibetan musician whose extraordinary vocal ability and diverse musical talents have enchanted audiences around the globe.

Lhamo Dolma (Amdo-Tibet), with her hauntingly beautiful voice, can transport the listener to the highest reaches of the Himalayan peaks. A polished performer, she was invited to sing for His Holiness The Dalai Lama this year at his teachings in Melbourne

Joining Lhamo and Tenzin will be Byron Shire performers Ian Draaisma and Elyjah McLeod; both exceptional, heartfelt performers and contemporary throat singers.

To take the concert to another level will be performance drawing artist Kellie O’Dempsey and tagtool animator Michael Dick, crafting a spectacle of the NOW via digital projection into the auditorium. Together they will create vast illuminated works that are the direct response of the collective energy inspired by the performance.

The Kalachakra Stupa is a sacred monument symbolic of community strength and interdependence and is also known as the stupa for world peace.

The whole community is personally invited to participate in the many stages of the construction of the stupa. The project will take more than a year to complete and will be overseen at all stages by the Gyuto Monks of Tibet.

Byron Bay Community Centre, Tuesday 15th November at 7:30pm.

Tickets $33 from www.byroncentre.com.au.
